It's really hard to imagine that this time last Friday evening I was sitting at home, work clothes ironed , camera bag all prepped ready for a beautiful wedding when I got a message from the couple saying that their wedding had been cancelled ! I was devastated for them both to have their special day stopped at such short notice.
I guess like most people here in the UK we had heard of this coronavirus but had somehow had the attitude of let's carry on as normal until someone else says elsewise. Last weekend people here started to take more notice and our local registrars took the steps of cancelling all weddings until June until further notice. This of course was the right step to take.
This resulted in the next few days of me being in contact with upcoming wedding couples and trying to find a new rearranged date for them all, I am not going to lie to you all but this has been one of the hardest things I have had to do, being a Wedding Photographer is not just a job for me, it’s a passion and my escape from my normal life as a Dad to my beautiful twins, weddings give me a chance to get out into the real world and socialise whilst doing a job that i love.I have spent the week crying with some of you, laughing with some of you, but all of you have been amazing through what must of been a really hard time and decision for you all to make. All the local venues I know have been amazing and working together makes me proud to be part of this amazing suffolk wedding community and profession.
To make things easier moving forward I have made a list of all my available dates over this and next year so that when you are in contact with your venue and the registrars it will make picking a date easier as this would mean if I am free then a simple date change.

I personally can’t wait for the day that we can all be together again and celebrate your wedding days, cake will never taste so good, the dance floor will be busier than ever. One thing we have to get us all through this is love and love will always find a way.
